Echo-77 and I have been working on a multiplayer map mod for a while now, and it's gotten to the point in our progress where we need actual playtesting to find any ways to further improve it. We need 8 volunteers to help. This map is being worked on with the zombies gametype in mind. This mod was created using the original map, Spooky hollow made by Black Crypt: http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=6245
Features:
Edited level textures
Automatically unshielded bipeds
A different weapon set, using mostly CMT items with damage optimized for unshielded combat
A simplified HUD (with the grimy overlay as seen in the STKFT flood campaign level)
The area outside the stone wall is accessible (it's a one-way trip inward)
And more.






We need people to help us out! If you'd like to join, comment below and I'll send you the map when I'm ready. Be prepared to join the server at 8 PM Eastern time on Saturday, May 5. If you don't show, we will go without you.

This is a first-come first-serve deal! Only the first 8 people to respond will be allowed access to the beta! If you want in, don't wait!

I've always wanted the Windfall Island and Hyrule Market maps as Zombie maps when they are 100% completed with the Phasor app built in the hosted server. The Windfall Island my team worked on had a lot of good places for humans to camp from zombies but also has a fair advantage for the zombies as well such as there are many ways the zombies can enter the spots. For example on the Pirate Ship, if humans camp on the crow's nest, a sniper rifle spawns there, but there should be a time limit to where it spawns like every 1 minute and 30 seconds and spawning with normal 8 rounds of ammo. But in order to get to the crow's nest, there are a lot of ways to go from such as climbing up the main ladder to top, climbing up the ship nets on the sides, and even walk up the front rope of the ship or the back rope as well. Other places like top of the light house has many ways to enter it with 1)Where the port should be added from the second level and 2)Climbing up the rotating Ferris Wheel looking Windmill. The Phasor app is also the best app to make zombie gametypes as I've seen many servers hosted with in on Halo full version. I also heard that the Phasor app should work on Halo Custom Edition too.

All volunteers will receive a PM with a Dropbox link to the map when I finish up a couple of things with it.

Cool, but why are you using that old Flood Campaign HUD?


We wanted something gritty and dirty, and the Flood HUD seemed to fit that rather well. Unfortunately, we were unable to seperate the grime from the tinted shapes, although it doesn't look that bad.

Uggh, can't you modders 'work' on your own maps? All you seem to have done is take the stuff I made and made it grubby and could you explain just how you are 'designing' it. In what way is your 'design' going to differ from what is already there?

You're also basing this off of five Alpha screenshots.

Don't open your mouth if you have nothing productive to say.
Hard work is going into this.
Something you have and wont ever see.
In other words, go somewhere else, and forget this thread. It doesnt include you.

Use smoothing groups to smooth out those curved and round features.

Okay, it didn't look like today worked out. The new date and time will Be MAY 12, 8 PM U.S. EASTERN TIME (if you need to convert time zones, just look up a time zone map or time zone converter). Depending on how many more people ask to join before that time, there may be a second server hosted by Echo-77.

I'm sorry, but what does that mean? I'm assuming you didn't check the posters name against the name of the author of the map you are modifying, and that's pretty much all you are doing.

So please, don't use words like 'working on a map' and 'designing' unless that's what you are doing. You are taking someone else's hard work and just tweaking it and messing about with it in sapien. No real content creation.

If you want to make a 'MOD' of any map, then fine, just don't try and make out that you are working hard 'designing' something new.


You guys got xfire? add blackcrypt if you want the original source files from the original author of the content you are trying to modify.

Opening post. We even linked to the original. If you wanna argue with haloextreme, I'd rather you do it over his private messages, because he doesn't even have anything to do with the project.

Uh...
A) I have no idea who you are.
B) I don't remember anyone telling me not to do anything.
C) Modding is a first-come, first-serve deal.

Dude? You're now denying my existence? I told you all about my plans to make a Zombies map on Sppoky Hollow over Xfire. Also, why did you remove me as friend?

Yeh, in your original post you state that it's 'based on' which is simply untrue, it's not based on my map, it IS my map which you've ripped textures from and modified and then added some scenery which looks like it's ripped from the graveyard map and then put on a god awful hud which obstructs the players view to the extreme.

Again, don't make out you built something from someone else's idea and claim you all been banging away thru the night to make something cool.

And, why don't you ask recon to stop posting his drivel?

Also, I offered ALL the original source files that went into making the original map, that offer has yet to be acknowledged.
